SN 339. Cal. 11.35mm. The Danish Schouboe is a rare, single action, internal hammer, blowback pistol firing a special 11.35 mm cartridge having a very light wood cored jacketed bullet. It has a frame mounted rotatable safety and bottom release magazine. This gun has a 5″ bbl with a fixed front sight & drift adjustable rear sight secured with a fixation screw. The left side of the slide is marked “DANSK REKYLRIFFEL SYNDIKAT / KOBENHAVN.” with SN “339” marked on the rear surface of the tang. Egyptian style gold inlay has been applied to the bbl, slide, safety and frame with top of slide bearing initials “C.W.”. Metallic grips have also been ornately inlaid in gold, each featuring a large Uruguayan crest whose shield measures 1-1/4″ x 13/16″. A gold border has been applied to the base of the frame and repeated on the magazine base whose walls remain unadorned. Dismounting is accomplished by depressing the horizontally serrated insert above the tang and then rotating the bbl slide assembly up and off the frame. Slide can then be separated from the bbl to confirm that both are marked with matching numbers. According to the consignor, this pistol was presented to Claudio Williman, 20th President of Uruguay (1907 – 1911), following the Madsen machine gun contract to Uruguay, ca. 1910-11. PROVENANCE: Collection of Dr. Geoffrey Sturgess. CONDITION: Approx 95% orig rust blue, the balance involved by patchy oxidation reflective of poor storage – particularly on leading edge of right side of slide & frame, and bottom right frame, grip & toe of magazine. Missing lanyard ring. Bright bore with sharp rifling & mild oxidation. Perfect manual mechanics. A highly desirable Schouboe with historic provenance. 4-52513 (15,000-20,000) – Lot 2225
